Thriving Through Experiences: The 7X Summit 2022

After what to many of us feels like a few years of just surviving, the theme for 2022 is definitely thriving – something The Experience Research Society (EXPRESSO) is taking to heart with the subject of its 2022 conference.

Following two years of virtual events, this year’s 7 Experiences Summit will take place IRL at Brigham Young University in Utah between 12-15 October. The theme is “Thriving Through Experiences”:

“The experiences individuals have and organizations provide play a huge role in determining the extent to which individuals and organizations thrive. The conference will provide a space for researchers and professionals to come together to share and discuss research examining the connection between experiences and thriving.”
